size of gallium is less than aluminium due to d-orbitals,but why so?

Hi Ranjita,


 


The atomic radius of the Ga is less than Al because of poor screening effect.


The atomic radius of Ga is slightly lesser than of Al because in going from Al to Ga, the electrons have already occupied 3d sub shell in Ga. The screening effect of these intervening electrons being poor, has less influence to decrease the effective nuclear charge, therefore the electrons in Ga experience more forces of attractions towards nucleus to result in lower size of Ga than Al.


 


Regards,

The shielding effect of d-orbitals is very poor due to it’s diffused-spreading-shape in case of gallium. The d-orbital have diffused nature and thus poor shielding-effect.The shielding is just reducing impact of effective positive nuclear charge on the outer most electrons. The position of Gallium is just immediately after Zn which has completly filled d-orbitals ( 10 electrons). This makes the pronunced effect of nuclear charge (Zeff) and we find reduction in atomic radius of Gallium. It is thus diffused d-orbitals and their inability to shield the strong +ve charge which changes the trend of Atomic Radius. The Ga At. radius is thus unexpectedly smaller than Al and change in trend of Periodic Table set-up.

tell me what is the difference between base and the nucleophile
 
 
1.All nucleophiles are bases, but all the bases cannot be nucleophiles. 2.Bases are hydrogen acceptors, thus perform neutralizing reactions, but nucleophiles attack electrophiles to...

Why +I group increases bascitiy and delocalization of l.p. increases basicity..???
 
 
+I groups are those groups which delocalize the electron pair away from itself. Therefore a partial + charge + appears on the group and - on the carbon to which it is attached.Now when a +I ...

absolutely. :) which part was not clear? the delocalization right? see, nitrogen, oxygen, these atoms when in the form of a compound, have lone pairs. they can donate these lone pairs to...

No No, i thought the same but then i thought that you must be talking about the group itself which is showing delocalization and that is also showing basicity. see in case of...
